Spring is not far to come



O intellectuals of twenty-first century...
You, with your blazed hearts,
grievous minds
and imperiled consciences
for few minutes
come to this
blue domain of autumn........

Far away in the sky
stars are staring at the earth
like wondering twinkling eyes
of small kids.
Look at those......

Sitting on the table of grass
grasshoppers are whispering
a song with zest....
listen to their song.
and if you can
have a friendly gossip with them....
then do what I say.......

Turn your minds
into some dazzling colorful butterflies
and let those fly....
turn your hearts into some fresh velvety flowers
and let those bloom..
and you make yourselves
kids roaming around arrhythmic
to catch those butterflies
and to pluck those flowers.....
see, spring is not far to come........

Translation of Gotie Nibedana of poet Brajanatha Ratha
